VENICE, Italy, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Hollywood costume designer Mary Zophres says she considers herself lucky to have worked with George Clooney and Brad Pitt on their looks for their latest film.

Clooney and Pitt, longtime friends who previously co-starred in "Ocean's Eleven" and its two sequels, will soon be seen in the black comedy "Burn After Reading."

The actors, along with their co-star Frances McDormand, were at the Venice Film Festival this week to promote the movie.

"What's interesting about this movie is that it is all about middle-aged losers," The Daily Telegraph quoted McDormand as saying about "Burn After Reading." "George Clooney and Brad Pitt as losers -- that's novel."

"I'm the luckiest costume designer in Hollywood, for sure," The Telegraph reported Zophres said. "But getting George and Brad to look like ordinary guys? Even cheap suits look better on Brad."
